    Less meat, more water — Earth Day math
    Eighty percent of farmed beef is raised in pasture for about a year, then fed for three to six months with feed made from corn and soy. To grow just one pound of corn, you need 147 gallons of water, and cattle can gorge about 1,000 pounds or more of feed in that time. That equals about 140,000 bathtubs of water – per ton of animal. By adopting and giving up meat once a week, you can make a big impact on the Earth’s clean water supply
